If you think this is no evidence for the Primal Cause, tell us yourself what caused the universe to exist if it is composed of matter and matter cannot cause itself to exist. If you don't know, why discard the concept of Causality? Why not give the Primal Cause the benefit of the doubt according to the concept of Probability?
None of the other gaps in human knowledge that have been filled with the ever-increasing body of human knowledge have ever confirmed the existence of any of the deities that have been worshipped over the millennia of our known history. Without substantial positive evidence for them, I see no reason to include them in any hypotheses about what is currently still unknown. None of your silly little semantic tricks will change that.

We're done here.

And you are claiming a victory based on your own lies. Nothing out of the ordinary there, you demolish your own validity, with your distorted bullshit. Still it isn't much of a loss for you is it? I'd guess from your perspective, when you have nothing worth posting, anything you might post is a win. That boils down to it being not much of a win for you either.

Anybody can beat the Siro, but never as soundly as the siro beats itself

Yes, I can see why you are not here. You don't have any thing to say. At least try to understand the concept of Logic. I am using Logic, not religion to prove the Primal Cause and you are shattered in pieces down into silence.

Open your mouth when you have evidence of god, and not before.

I have the evidences for the Primal Cause based on the concepts of Logic and Causality. The problem is that they don't satisfy the bud tastes of your preconceived notions. Furthermore, you refuse to acknowledge those concepts.

There can be no all powerful compassionate god because we have evidence of avoidable suffering.

You have no credible evidence any god exists.

If you were able to prove your god existed, I would go join the opposition because it is not compassionate.

Why not mellow out with a good cup of coffee?
So fare little as been resolved so why not enjoy a brew
free cee COFFEE COLORED CLOUDS

COFFEE COLORED CLOUDS

I remember a time of damaged days
And nights of a negative nature
I recall those years of woeful ways
And an era of negative nomenclature

First those days spoke bright as neon
Every coffee sunrise glowed like her eyes
But then those days turned into nights of Freon
While cloistered coal colored clouds were claiming the skies

She’d offer me a cigarette with grace and aplomb
But doom often blooms where beauty once grew
Alas love begot a bride of anguish with ambiguity as her groom
While crooked Christians prayed in a putrid pew

Christians praying while unholy flames were fanned
Somewhere on a secluded and sun-bathed beach
Their prayers dissipated in a labyrinth of a lonely land
While the moon vowed me magic well out of reach

So let me recap for those who were otherwise distracted
There were damaged days and negative nights
Time was filled by a woman to whom I was far too-attracted
Until disaster duly devoured such delicate delights

You are speaking no differently from a common theist believer of talking serpents. By assuming that God has any thing to do with the sufferings of man, you are being nothing less than an anthropomorphist believer of a literal god from the Olympian Pantheon of Greek Mythology. Now, if you are doing this on purpose or based on ignorance, remains to be considered.

Wrong. I said we have evidence of avoidable suffering, which is true. From that, I believe there is nothing worth worshiping.

So your "not literal god" should require no church, no synagogue, no worship, no formalised religion? Correct?

Naked Coffee Shock

Naked Coffee Shock

So. It’s early Sunday morning in DC
Visiting my locale Mickey D’s
I’m not too bright about anything
Simply wanting a cup of Joe
Before I go to church
The help as usual is friendly and polite
(Some say they’re not but that’s alright)
2 ugly men walked in behind me
Clearly they were there to sin
Both had no clothes on so things went south
They were erect
(and I don’t mean posture or the building of a house)
I averted my eyes at the appropriate moment
These are hard times and getting harder
Not wanting to be party to this depravity and crime
I tried to leave but…. Never mind…
“Reach for the sky!” The nude men shouted
Then struck up a conversation
(I thought this was salacious and unkind)
So. I geared up my stronger serious mind
Became sophisticated and refined
I told them they are in the wrong place and time
Informed them the church is close to here
If they were so inclined I’d take them there
Repentance is a goodly and Godly thing
“Ridiculous!” They cried
They wanted more than a house of God
It was the apple pies they so desired
I told them they looked silly and kinda dumb
Reminded them they had no guns (obviously, they were naked)
There was no way to fake it
The only thing they threatened were some smiles
So. The manager told them there are no pies
And sizing up the situation, continued
“Can’t either of you read?”
The sign is clearly posted
“Shoes are required”
You are not properly attired
So kindly leave

Sometimes after leaving the church of Creationism, I spasm into bad poetry.

Its because I don't have any evidence of god and can't argue like a grown man.

For those of you who don't know, Steven Wright is my new Atheist buddy, since I left the church of Creationism.

I will quote more Atheists in the future.

Absolutely correct. When I go to a synagogue is to socialize with other Jews.

In the news
VATICAN CITY (CBSDC/AP)— A new report claims that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is targeting Pope Francis — a report that the Vatican says is simply not true.
According to Il Tempo, Israeli sources reportedly told the Italian newspaper that the pope is “in the crosshairs of ISIS.” The report stated that Francis is being targeted because he is “the greatest exponent of the Christian religions” and the “bearer of false truth.”
The Vatican, though, denounced the report.
“There is nothing serious to this,” Father Federico Lombardi S.J., a Vatican spokesman, told Catholic News Agency.“There is no particular concern in the Vatican. This news has no foundation.”
The Catholic News Agency reports that Italy has issued a nationwide terror alert, despite no imminent threats or specifics about a potential attack on the country.
On Friday, Britain raised the terror threat level from substantial to severe, meaning that a terrorist attack is considered highly likely.
Home Secretary Theresa Mays said the decision to raise the threat level was related to developments in Iraq and Syria, but that there was no information to suggest an attack was imminent. Some of the plots are likely to involve fighters who have traveled from Britain and Europe to take part in fighting in the Middle East.
